Dante DiLoreto and Brad Falchuk serve as the EP's executive producers. Jayma Mays, who plays the role of guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury, auditioned with "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me" and performs the song, with some changes in lyrics. "I'm so going to have to get her to do that on the show," said Murphy on her audition piece. "Whatever Happened to Saturday Night" is sung by John Stamos, and "Damn It, Janet" by Cory Monteith and Lea Michele.
Glee: The Music, The Rocky Horror Glee Show debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 the week of October 27, 2010, with 48,000 copies sold, the lowest debut and sales for the cast in the United States. This debut made Glee the first television series to have six or more soundtracks chart in the chart's top ten, and marked the highest position ever reached for a Rocky Horror album.
